Arrive early and look forward to Hann. Münden, idyllically situated at the confluence of the Fulda and Werra rivers. With over 700 half-timbered houses from six centuries, the old town still enchants visitors from all over the world.
A beautiful bike route along the Fulda River to Kassel - the "Capital of the German Fairy Tale Route" - awaits you today. The statue of Hercules, the imposing UNESCO cultural heritage site on Wilhelmshöhe, greets you from afar. Kassel is not only worth a visit during the world-famous art exhibition Documenta. Therefore, visit the worth seeing Museum Fridericianum and the Orangerie in the Fuldaauen. Like a rising sun, the Orangerie shines out between the trees. Let your first day of cycling come to a pleasant end here.
The Fulda Cycle Path initially winds its way through the varied Hessian hilly landscape, always in the immediate vicinity of the Fulda. In the afternoon you continue cycling through the meadows and fields of the Melsungen region. Look forward to the small half-timbered town of Melsungen, which is over 1000 years old! Marvel at the flower-filled alleys, the many lovingly decorated half-timbered houses, the idyllic market square and one of the most beautiful half-timbered town halls in Germany.
Today you cycle along the river Fulda into the wooded north of Hessen. Hessen's only basket maker museum and the Cistercian nunnery Haydau in Morschen are just a few highlights. On the way, a special experience awaits you between Morschen-Binsförth and Malsfeld-Beiseförth. You will cross the Fulda on a distance of 50 m in the air! With the help of a bicycle cableway unique in Germany. Nestled in the narrowest part of the Fulda valley, you will then reach your destination for the day, the romantic half-timbered old town of Rotenburg a. d. Fulda.
Today you cycle through the charming low mountain range between the Fulda and the Werra from the Fulda to the Werra. Between Bebra and Sontra you have to master about 200 meters of height difference, which you could also cover by train. Look forward to Eschwege, stroll through the half-timbered town on the Werra and marvel at 1,000 and more half-timbered houses with magnificent carvings. Some of these houses of the old half-timbered town lean a bit and gain charm just because of that. At the town hall you can listen to the chimes and maybe discover the symbolic figure of Eschwege, the Dietemann. He appears every hour on the clock and blows his horn.
Today you cycle along the Werra. Sculptures by well-known artists line the banks and tempt you to stop off. It is nice that you arrive early in the half-timbered town of Bad Sooden-Allendorf. Salt and brine have determined the fortunes of the town here for centuries. Feel the natural power of the brine and relax on a tour of the graduation house or unwind in the 32-degree warm brine water at the Werratal Therme or in the diverse sauna landscape.
Passing proud castles, you cycle along the Werratal cycle path to the cherry town of Witzenhausen. Stroll through the historic town center with its many half-timbered houses and marvel at the town hall, the old town wall and the Diebesturm. Afterwards you cycle through Europe's largest closed cherry-growing area to Hann. Münden.
Unfortunately, it's already over, but if you want to go further, just cycle along the Weser to the North Sea.
